Try This Murray State Solution: Settle It On the Court

I love March Madness. There’s nothing like watching teams from small conferences battle it out for the opportunity to earn a spot on the big stage. However, I’m not suggesting that the process is perfect. Every year, it seems there’s a No. 1 seed that gets upset in the conference tournament and misses out on a chance to play in the Big Dance. It could happen again this spring...

Solving the Conference Tournament Conundrum

Belmont and Murray State staged the best game of the entire season Saturday night in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament final. Unfortunately, the wrong team won. Murray State had a perfect record of 16-0 in conference play this season. Yet, CBS will probably be showing America a room full of dejected Racers next Sunday when the NCAA tournament field is announced. Them’s the...

An Ohio Valley Upset Creates a Not-So-Great Debate For Murray State

The first automatic bid to the 2015 NCAA Tournament was handed out on Saturday night in Nashville, Tennessee. The way in which the Belmont Bruins earned their way into the field of 68 could not have been more dramatic. Belmont and its opponent, the Murray State Racers, basically traded basketball haymakers for 40 minutes. The two teams either tossed in one outrageously long three...

John Lollar of Murray State has highest leg kick in the history of leg kicks (VIDEO)

@JDrumUK Murray State pitcher John Lollar has the highest leg kick in the history of baseball on any planet.  It’s science.  He doesn’t have any tendons or ligaments and his body is composed of 40% elastic.  Fine, that’s a lie.  40% elastic? You bought that? Seriously, watch this leg kick and then try to replicate it.  Warning: have plenty of ice and an orthopedic surgeon...

Murray State Pitcher Has One Of Most Insane Leg Kicks Ever Seen (Photo)

John Lollar is more flexible than you. Lollar is a pitcher for the Murray State baseball team, and he’s ascended to relative baseball Internet fame thanks to what he’s able to do with his left leg, specifically during his windup. Jeff Drummond was able to capture Lollar’s crazy windup on film, and it should put yoga instructors (not to mention Orlando Hernandez) to shame. Lollar’s...

Louisville vs. Murray State: Three Predictions

Photo: Pete Cautilli I’m feeling pretty good about my prediction record having gone 3 for 3 in week 1 against Miami – Gardner won the battle of the newcomer QBs which was more or less the difference in the game, our front seven dominated the Miami offensive line, and our special teams came up with a huge touchdown immediately after Miami took their only lead of the game, giving...

Petrino Says Murray State Game Will Test His Team’s Maturity

Pete Cautilli | The Cardinal Connect I have no problem admitting that I’m totally not a fan of playing FCS opponents each season. That said, I understand the reasoning behind it. Every FBS program needs at least one gimme win and the FCS schools get paid a boatload of money to get their brains beat in. Seeing your team blowout at inferior opponent can be entertaining, especially...
